Description

This shrub is native to rich woods. The flowers are a purple-bronze color and blooms in Spring. It is one of the most adaptable, care free native plants available, but it is little used. Foliage appears in early Spring. The leaves are particularly attractive. They produce spreading colonies prohibiting weed growth and is drought tolerant. It will work as a ground cover of sorts under other shrubs, like rhododendrons.
